The headline is a guaranteed attention-getter: “Earn Up to 60,000 American Airlines AAdvantage Miles With Hyatt.”
That’s mucho miles—enough for a round-trip, first-class award ticket within the U.S. or to Canada, Mexico, or the Caribbean.
So, what must you do to earn those miles?
The key to Hyatt’s promotion is the earning rate: 3,000 American miles per stay. That’s a hefty six times the 500 miles per stay normally awarded.
Even so, to earn that big number of miles, 60,000, you’ll have to complete a big number of Hyatt stays. Twenty, to be specific. And you’ll have to do it before October 15.
Registration is required.
Deal or No Deal
Twenty hotel stays in just a few months is a high hurdle, even for the most hyperactive of business travelers. And Hyatt’s relatively small portfolio—around 424 hotels, compared to Hilton’s network of more than 3,500 properties—makes it that much harder. I doubt many will earn the full 60,000 miles.
Still, earning 3,000 miles per stay is a worthwhile bonus. And American miles have proven to be pretty reliably redeemable, so the bonus delivers solid value.
